Privacy Policy

ImpactUs Marketplace LLC (“ImpactUs”, “we” or “us”) appreciates your concerns about the privacy of personal information that you provide to us through this website (“Site”). Given the nature of the services we provide, we are required by regulation, law or operating policies to collect this personal information. Therefore, we have posted this Policy to explain how we collect, use, share and most importantly protect information when you access or use our Site and how you can update and control the use of information provided through the Site.

  • What information do we collect?

When you register on our Site, you may be asked to provide personal information about yourself such as your name, mailing address, e-mail address or telephone number. You may, however, also visit our Site anonymously.

If you open an account with ImpactUs, we will collect additional information such as your social security number and other information related to your assets, investment experience, income and investment objectives through applications and other forms you submit to us. We also may obtain additional information from third parties to verify any representations made by you and to comply with various regulatory requirements.

We may also collect certain information about your use of our Site. For example, we may capture the IP address of the device you use to connect to the online service, the type of operating system and browser you use, and information about the site you came from, the parts of the Site you access, and the site you visit next.

  • What do we use your information for?

Any of the information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:

  1. To personalize your experience: Your information helps us to better respond to your needs and allows us to provide information about the products and services you request and we offer and assist in the day-to-day operation and maintenance of your account. This includes disclosing your personal information to third parties we contract with to help conduct our business.

  2. To improve our Site: We continually strive to improve our Site based on the information and feedback we receive from you so we may better understand our clients and their needs.

  3. To send periodic emails: The email address you provide may be used to send you information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions.

  4. To educate: The information you provide may be used in the aggregate to generate industry trends and publish newsletters. Personally identifiable information will not be disclosed in this regard.

  • Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to our Affiliates1 or outside parties your personally identifiable information for marketing and other purposes. However, this does not include our Affiliates or trusted third parties who assist us in operating our Site, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential and is permissible under applicable laws and regulations. We also prohibit our affiliated and non-affiliated third party service providers from using or disclosing your information except for a limited particular purpose for which it was shared and to the persons for whom disclosure was intended as agreed to by contract. We, and our service providers, may also share your information as required or permitted by law. For example, we may share information with regulatory authorities and law enforcement officials when such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law.

  • Can I limit the sharing of my information?

Financial institutions may choose how they share your personal information. Federal law gives you the right to limit certain types of information sharing but not all. For instance, under Federal law, you may limit the sharing of information for (i) our affiliates’ everyday business purposes (information about your creditworthiness), (ii) our affiliates to market to you, and (iii) for non-affiliates to market to you. In such cases, you may limit or “opt-out” of the sharing your personal information. However, we do not currently share your personal information with any Affiliate or non-affiliated third-party in a manner that triggers this opt-out right. Accordingly, there is no need at this time for you to opt-out or take any other action.

If you live in a state which requires a financial institution to obtain your affirmative consent to authorize sharing your personal information with either affiliated companies or nonaffiliated third parties in the manner set forth above, ImpactUs will seek your written consent to authorize disclosure of your personal information before that data is shared.

  • Do we use cookies?

Yes, cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's hard drive through your Web browser (if you allow) that enables the sites or service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. We use cookies to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can enhance the website experience and offer better tools in the future.

  • Can you opt out of our cookies?

Yes, our cookies all originate from our Site domain: Anyone can opt out of having ImpactUs cookies dropped either by blocking all cookies (via their internet browser settings/preferences) or by blocking cookies specifically from the domain specifically (if their browser allows this).

  • How do we protect your information?

To protect your personal information from unauthorized access and use, we use a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information. Contracts with our service providers require them to restrict access to your non-public personal information, and to likewise maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards against unintended disclosure. In addition, we have internal policies governing the proper handling of client information by employees.

  • How do I update my personal information?

You may review or update your personal information by logging in to the Site if you are registered. If you cannot change the information online or you prefer to request changes offline, please update your information by contacting ImpactUs at (877) 795-4672.
